owe that fund. under current law, social security can pay out out 100% of its benefits for the next 25 years which is probably longer than i'm going to meed it. after that point 85% to 95% of its benefits, a minor tweak like for instance raising the cap on who has to pay social security taxes above the current roughly $100,000 or, for instance, making investment income, either one would make the program solvent forever. the situation is not terribly different with medicare. >> john: does the president mean it when he talks about putting the cuts on the table sir? >> i take no pleasure in saying this. i voted for the president twice. he's the leader of my party but on this regard, the president is wrong. >> john: before we go, congressman, what do you think of a senate budget that came out today? >> i think the senate budget that came out today is a stab at trying to deal with a lot of different problems. without focusing necessarily on our core problems. i would like to see all effort devoted toward putting people back to work, improving education standards making sure that everybody w
